  • Homework for Year 5: 11.12.20

    Published 11/12/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    As you can see, our totem pole is taking shape, complete with disgruntled comments from Citizens of Ancient Greece, who feel that they do not have a political voice. The topic on Ancient Greece has certainly made us appreciate more recent times.

    In the meantime, here is the last homework for the term.

    In My Maths, there are a couple of times tables tasks. As we have been delving deeper and deeper into multiplication and division, those who have developed a real fluency in their times tables have been at a distinct advantage. Please keep practising as much as you can.

    In spag.com, there are some more questions about brackets or parenthesis. 

    Over this week, I will be retesting the children on their spellings for this term. Please check over the spellings in each of the homework blogs and practise the spellings and spelling rules you have covered.

  • Year 5 Homework 04:10:20

    Published 04/12/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    As the end of term approaches, we are beginning to dip our toes into Christmas.

    We have been busy practising our carol, which is a Canadian carol written for the Ist Nation people from the Wyandot or Huron tribe. I have saved our Powerpoint, with a link to a version of the song sung in the original Wyandot language. Their history , like so many First Nation and American Indian people, has been adversely impacted by the  arrival of the European settlers. However, it is amazing to think that ,as a people, they treasured this carol so much that it was passed down through the generations by word of mouth. One hundred and fifty years after it was originally written for them, the carol was  'discovered' and 'translated' into French by French settlers to Canada. It was this version that was translated into English in 1926.  

    Please make sure you learn the words off by heart.

  • Year 5 homework 27.11.20

    Published 27/11/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    At the end of a busy week, I am going to start the homework blog with a request. We are going to tackle the response to our historical key question- how much power do the people have- by creating a box 'sculpture.' For this , we will need boxes, tubes ( basically cardboard) of all different shapes and sizes. If you have any thing suitable, please can you being it into school in a named carrier bag, so that it can be quarantined for 72 hours. We are going to start constructing it at the end of the week.

    Meanwhile, this is the homework for the next few days. 

    Maths: we have been investigating squared numbers. In the work set on My Maths, there are also questions about triangular numbers. These are numbers with an array that looks like a triangle, like this:

    For those of you who need to practise your 4 times tables, I have added an extra My Maths task for you.

  • Year 5 Homework: 20.11.20

    Published 20/11/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    I can hardly believe that the end of November is fast approaching. Where has the time gone? As part of a busy week, we have been looking at the different types of government in the Greek City states: monarchy (Sparta) , oligarchy (Thebes)  and democracy (Athens). Developing this further, we are hoping to have our own mini class election where the class can elect a representative who can  consult with the class and help plan an afternoon of activities to celebrate the number of house points we have earned over the term. The children have been busy making posters and will work on speeches and presentations next week. 

    In the meantime, in Maths, the children have started working on their Multiplication and Division unit of work. The My Maths work is all about finding factors, common factors and prime factors.

  • Year 5 Homework 13.11.20

    Published 14/11/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    First of all, many apologies for uploading this work on Saturday. I think I was so excited having a miniature Einstein in my class yesterday, as well as other notable scientists, that homework was completely forgotten. The terrible truth dawned in the middle of Tescos!  So here, rather belatedly, is your homework. 

    My Maths homework this week is based on our 2-week module of work based on Statistics. It should be very straight forward if you take into account the key words in the questions and look at the graphs carefully.

    For spelling, we will continue to revise the homophones given last week: 

    accept
    except
    effect
    affect
    aloud
    allowed
    weather
    whether
    whose
    who’s

    Here are the year 5 homophones and near homophones we are also working on: stationary, stationery, whose, who's, fate, fete and wary, weary.

    I have saved a word search below if you want to have a go at finding the words.

  • Homework 06:11:20

    Published 06/11/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    I can't believe that the first week has whizzed by so quickly. Next week, we are having a focus on climate change, on Thursday and science: Friday. I can't wait to see everyone in their scientific outfits next Friday, too.

    This week, in Maths, we are doing a unit of work on Statistics. In My Maths, there will be work on this. Right at the end of last half term, we looked at punctuating speech. The Spag.com work will focus on work related to this.

    In spelling- we are reminding ourselves of the year 4 Homophones and near homophones: 
    accept
    except
    effect
    affect
    aloud
    allowed
    weather
    whether
    whose
    who’s

    However, on Monday some of us will start working on the year 5 Homophones. I will add those on later.

  • Homework 16.10.20

    Published 16/10/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    In School this week, we have been perfecting our column addition and subtraction methods and practising incorporating apostrophes of possession into sentences. The challenge has been what to do with the s in plural possession.We have been working on 'giving the apostrophe to the owner.' If we cover up the apostrophe with our left hand, the owner should be revealed.

    In My Maths, I have set work on mental strategies for adding and taking away and column methods. Some of you will have revision work from Year 4. In spag.com, you will have more work on apostrophes...focusing on plural possession.

    In spelling, we will be focussing on some of the tricky words from the Year 3/4 list. Over the week, we will be working on strategies to help us to remember them.

  • Homework for the week beginning 09.10.20

    Published 09/10/20, by Lucy Hinckley

    This week, in Maths, we have been tackling questions  based on Negative numbers and Roman Numerals. Log in to My Maths to solve negative number problems. I have also saved some year 4 revision work on Roman numerals. 

    In spag.com, log in to answer questions about using apostrophes. We will do more work on this in class, next week. See if you can spot any apostrophe errors in the world around you. There are some examples in our thumbnail. You could take a photo and email it to me . 

    Spelling: This is focussing on words with the prefix ir or il, which stems from the prefix in, meaning not. Have a look at this video to see how this change occurs:  www.bbc.co.uk/teach/class-clips-video/english-ks2-wonderful-words-prefixes/zknd7nb?scrlybrkr=06a11c3c#:~:text=Rule%201%20explains%20that%20for,changes%20to%20'ir-'

    Remember, in is 'the Mystique of the spelling world, since it can change its form when next to certain letters. Here is the word list: irresponsible, irrational, irrelevant, irresistible, illegal, illogical,illiterate and illegible,   HQ Stills | HQ Still of Jennifer Lawrence as Mystique in X-M… | Flickr
